Description

The presented album launches a series of recordings of little-known 19th-century Polish chamber music. This music has not been recorded yet, and its creators remain in the shadow of great 19th-century Polish composers, especially Fryderyk Chopin and Stanislaw Moniuszko. Therefore, it is all the more pleasing to restore the memory of unheard-of and forgotten Polish artists and to reinstate their music to contemporary listeners.

The album features three chamber pieces. The author of the first one, Grand Trio in D Major, is the Cracow composer Karol K 261;tski (18131867). This creator, a talented violinist at the beginning of his career, devoted himself primarily to composition after moving to Paris. His Trio is characterised by a clear formal structure, emotional melodies and elegant simplicity. The character of the Duo for clarinet and piano, Op. 47 by Ignacy Feliks Dobrzynski (18071867) is completely different. Dobrzynski is the best-known composer among the artists presented on the CD; he was also a violinist and teacher associated with Warsaw. His piece is a bravura and virtuoso composition, although still kept within the classical rules of the sonata-allegro form. The last composition, Piano Quartet in D Major, Op. 2 by Jozef Krogulski (18151842), is a work of a young but already very mature artist. In his piece, the composer used, among others, Polish dance folk music in its stylised form.

The pieces are presented by the Polish Piano Trio, which consists of Robert Kwiatkowski (violin), B 322;azej Golinski (cello) and Dominika Glapiak (piano), as well as by Andrzej Wojciechowski (clarinet), Miros 322;awa Sumlinska (piano), Karolina Pi 261;tkowska-Nowicka (violin), Krzysztof Komendarek-Tymendorf (viola), Maciej Ku 322;akowski (cello) and Bogna Czerwinska-Szymula (piano).
